    Here I believe that Walt or whomever this was written about was going through some sort of troubled time. And as he/she thought he/she was not alone, they were assuming that somebody in particular was going to be there for them. But that one has utterly disappeared. That one person wasn't there for him/her. But while searching for that somebody to help them, the ones least expected were found dependable.

    A fantastic poem, another of my favorites! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
